Senior, Business Administration (Sports Business)
Hometown: Tracy, California
Someone once told me if your job doesn’t give you goosebumps, you probably shouldn’t be doing it. And this industry and all of my internships have definitely always given me goosebumps. Whether it’s after the 100th volleyball game or basketball game, I am just so excited. I get butterflies in my stomach and goosebumps. I love it.

If I was to go back to my freshman self and say, “You’re going to work at events like the Super Bowl, winter and summer Olympic trials, the NBA All-Star game, the World Series, and work directly with marquee athletes like LeBron, Kevin Durant, Shaun White, and Antonio Brown and do all this stuff within three years,” I would have laughed at myself.

Being involved with the UO Investment Group—where we manage more than $1 million in real money—I gained a lot of knowledge and skills about financial modeling and writing financial reports. The UOIG’s portfolio is consistently one of the top-performing collegiate stock portfolios in the United States.
Nick Hubert, BS ’15

It’s that encouragement to go out and try new things and to really build that foundation for lifelong learning and lifelong relationships. I think that’s very hard to find. I found it at the Lundquist College of Business.
Hometown: Victorville, California
Accounting is literally the language of business, and if you can’t read those numbers, a business can completely collapse.
BS ’08, MActg ’09
Vice President of Finance, 8VC, San Francisco, California
At first glance, you might not associate accounting with entrepreneurship. But at my firm, it’s a bit like Shark Tank on a day-to-day basis.

The professors really teach you how to get a taste of everything to give you a better idea of what you want to do next.

The Lundquist College of Business gave me hands-on experience working with a professional client outside of schoolwork. That really made my résumé stand out.
Senior, Business Administration (Entrepreneurship)
Hometown: Agoura Hills, California
It’s not every day that you get to start a business while still in college. But that is exactly what I was encouraged to do. It has been an amazing journey.
Business Administration (Entrepreneurship), Class of 2018
Owner, Bespoke Bride, Bend, Oregon
I had all these ideas for starting my own business, but I didn’t know how to make it happen. On the very first day I walked into the Lundquist Center for Entrepreneurship, they said, “You need to run with this and we have all these people here that can help you.”
